    [​IMG]The Boys were looking down at the entire league with a record of 9-1...even though that season didn't end the way we wanted but man how times have changed

    Its pretty much been 2 things: Coaching and the inability of Jerry to build a good defense.

    We have had great franchise QB's in Romo and Dak which is usually the hardest thing to get.

    This may very well be a reincarnation of the year before that. Let’s see if 2021 is the next 2016, the roster circumstances are eerily similar.

    Still didn’t manage a playoff game though, despite home advantage!

    Except for the coaching staff. This franchise will be a lot better in '21. Fans can't expect MM & Company to fix Garrett's mess in 16 games w/no preseason. It's virtually impossible!

    Lightening in a bottle. One hit wonders. Cinderella season. 15 minutes of fame. Lady Luck shines on idiots and drunks.

    Lol one thing Mike has always done is value the money 5 positions. He‘s never been a part of teams that drafted RB’s or LB’s with premium picks (Clay Matthews was a pass rusher). A lot of DB’s and Dlineman which is exactly what we should and hopefully will be focused on in the draft.

    "Coaching" is an excuse. The albatross hires the coaches. His name is Jerry.

    Apparently finding a competent coaching staff is harder than we suspected too.

    So many here cling to that 2016 season with dear life forgetting since then this team has done nothing but play .500 ball....Snap out of it and come back to reality folks!

    When you have a dog sheet GM and culture you will be in a constant phase of rebuild. 25 years and counting.

    Dallas is a bottom feeder in terms of playoff success over this period. It is a travesty.

    Nowadays, the Cowboys are a team with a mediocre-at-best FO and are fortunate to have a good team now and then. As far as producing Super Bowl contenders, the last 25 years were much too revealing. Taking a step forward one year and a step back the next has been a fair thing to anticipate for some time now. Maybe that might change in my lifetime and yours, also. Let's do our best to be happy, in the meantime! It's just a game. ;)

    you forget knight for 2-3 games , Dalton 2-3 games, zeke with weak Hammy, and lets not forget trading Griffin and cutting Poe, Haha and few others etc etc

    i get it its insane how the fans see this year as the DC surely suk and fell off cliff, they act as if we are this bad with ours regular team when in fact this is our JV team..

    we will bounce back Year 2 Mm era and after a solid draft and nice FA or two, will surprise like we did in 2016 after 2015s similar season..
